A long 56 minutes
A young man (Regis Toomey) upon being released from prison, returns to his mother and girlfriend who think he has been leading an adventurous life in Australia. The deception works, but a rival for his girl's affections lies in wait with evil intentions. Regis Toomey, never a particularly dynamic actor, is extra bland in this role. The rest of the cast is so-so. Stodgy direction slows everything down, and 51/2 missing minutes make one plot element confusing and leave it unresolved. No chills. No thrills. The bottom line: ordinary.
The missing minutes include the title card and opening credits. The video is soft but watchable. The audio is a bit muffled
